Continuing a development of character, and the way it corresponds with atmosphere, "Vagabond" is lighter than "Transient", but not as nautically jolly as "Pirate". The album finds a happy medium, full of drones, mesmerizing patterns, and slices of experimental electronica. Mystified feels that "Vagabond" works especailly well as a total experience, and hopes that listeners will be able to enjoy it in totality-- and if not, that they will be able at least to think of the album as a whole...

|[J7N034] Can of Drone - mystified|
"Can of Drone" is the third guest release for this label by mystified, and the material presented within explores some new sonic territory that departs somewhat from previous work. The overall sound is bolder and noisier, and successfully blends elements of noise, dark ambient and home-taped sound in a way that cleverly avoids easy classification. The sounds are sometimes lush and dense, other times sparse and gritty, but all throughout this release and its many moods, the sonic perspective that...

The second installment of our "Theory" series comes from Mystified, who of course, needs no introduction. This single-track midform, "Accelerated Decrepitude" is a warped, chimey drone that slowly loses its shine over the course of its twenty minute duration. It has been pleasantly joked that those who enjoy footage of metal rusting or corroding in fast motion will especially like this release. As the sound of Mystified continues to evolve and develop, we at Timetheory are proud to assist in the...

Mystified, ever experimenting and innovating, has created a collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds. "For each of these 5 pieces I played a long note on the trombone, trying hard to get a good tone, and holding the note as long as I could. I then processed the notes. The software I used had a "randomize" feature, and I used that a lot for the processing. Each song you hear is a single note on a real trombone processed randomly, then re-composed in an editing progr...

Transient possesses a very rhythmic sound, yet is propelled only by the pulses of bass throughout.

Doesn't this difference mark the character of 2 diffferent eras?
